The quality of the resin casting is flawless and bubble free.  The level of detail is truly impressive.  The 4 pages of instructions include the usual Aires line drawing showing parts placement in an organized and well laid out way.  

If you're building the 1/32 Hasegawa P-47D, then this wheel well set will give you all the wonderful wheel well detail you want. 

You can purchase this and other fine resin detail items directly from Aires or from the many retailers that carry their products.  A list of some of those retailers can be found here.    


I would like to thank Aires for providing me with this review sample.
